We are now inundated with news on the obesity epidemic, which is sweeping through the developing world. Who could have imagined that China is now facing a similar crisis where large suggests prosperity. Stats’ pour out of the media on a daily basis, but not a great deal of column inches seem to be devoted to devising the solutions.

Take a look at this video from ‘Health Canada’. It’s six minutes long, but you have to watch it in its entirety as its in two parts. Part one shows the `not so wonderful world` of kids eating more and moving less. Part two shows how getting children moving again might just addressing the problem. Obesity is obviously a highly complex issue, but we can start with some very simple messages. Every parent with pre-teen children should watch this. I find it inspiring every time I watch it.
